Summary

This USGS data release presents tabular data of daily and annual (for the 9-month period March 1 through November 30) estimates of concentrations and fluxes of total and dissolved phosphorus, total nitrogen, chloride, and total suspended solids for 18 monitored tributaries of Lake Champlain. Annual estimates of concentration and flux are presented as 9-month data because the frequency and type of sample data from winter months are inadequate for making meaningful wintertime estimates. Daily estimates generally cover the period March 1990 through November 2014 and annual estimates 1990 through 2014, although dates vary by constituent and tributary, depending on availability of raw data. The dataset consists of 6 items: 1. Annual (9-month) [...]

Purpose

These data are used to calculate changes and trends in water quality over time in the Lake Champlain tributaries. Assessment of progress towards meeting phosphorus-reduction goals outlined in the Lake Champlain management plan (http://plan.lcbp.org/) relies on annual estimates of phosphorus flux. Daily and annual estimates also can be used as inputs to watershed models.
